"I feel India should legalize marijuana. Firstly, It's part of our culture. Secondly, I think if legalized and taxed it can be a huge revenue source. Not to mention it will remove the criminal element associated with it. Plus and most importantly it has a lot of medical benefits," Uday Chopra tweeted. In a tweet, the Mumbai Police warned Uday that although he is "privileged to express (his) view on a public platform", the possession, consumption and transportation of marijuana continues to be punishable under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985.
